SPEAKING UP FOR THE BEAUTY WITHIN
It’s time to make resolutions – and vows to diet, exercise and take up new hobbies are among the most popular pledges.
The results can be astounding, as Nicholas Moss has proved. The nineyear old – who has Down’s syndrome – had never spoken until fouryears ago when his pageant-mad sister took him along to one of her competitions.
Mum Elaine was unsure at first but agreed, saying: Who am I to say his condition or gender should stop him from doing what he wants?”
Nicholas, from Southampton, shone on stage as he modelled glitzy outfits. So much so, his excitement about his new hobby bubbled over and he spoke for the first time.
Now, after winning over 50 awards, with titles including Ultimate Grand Supreme and King, newly confident Nicholas is the poster boy for a new pageant competition set up by Elaine, whichwelcomes disabled entrants. She says: He’s the face of our pageant and we hope he encourages other children with disabilities to come to the competitions. It’s just a bit of fun, butwe makesure that everyone feels special. We want to show peoplethat pageants aren’t all about the beauty of the face, it is the beauty from within -something that Nicholas represents as he is beautiful.”
Happy new year!
